This book tells of the idea of bullying and how it affects others. Wanda is the victim of bullying and although she does not defend herself, she makes up stories to keep others interested in her. In the end, Wanda drew 100 dresses and gave her special dresses to the children who were bullying her. Although they feel bad, Wanda keeps in touch with them and they think fondly of her.
